Command to close the app?

Command to close the app?

Is there a way, to close the app through soti on zebra TC-57, Oreo 8.1 devices?

 

Since kill and kill_application don't work, is it possible in some other way to kill the app remotely? Perhaps via sendintent?

 

Currently what I'm doing is using 2 scripts that use mxconfig. One to Disable and other to Enable the app.

It really is quite frustrating that this feature is still not working in Android Enterprise. Here is another thread on the topic. It sounds like this might work on Samsung devices, but not Zebra unfortunately.

Hello Sasha,



Thank you for your post, unfortunately we do not have this feature for enterprise devices as there is restriction from Google side.

Only way to achieve this as you mention in your post is using mxconfig file.

I would like you to create a support case(click here) or call SOTI Support team(click here) to raise a Feature Request to kill application using script or feature to achieve this. These feature requests should be insisted by customers via Support case.

To provide you an heads up, this would not be an instant resolution as SOTI Product Team should communicate with iOS Team to leverage this feature to be managed by MobiControl. So, this may take weeks to months to get it included in the new build. Please follow the release notes of SOTI MobiControl to get an update on the improvements done on the new release.

Also, if this post has helped you in solving your inquiry, I would request you to mark the particular comment as "is solution", so others may benefit from this information.
